Unhappy to choose

I feel like nowadays people are unhappy because…there’s too much to choose from! Yes, exactly, because there are too many options 🤷🏼‍♀️
.
Subconsciously we want to have EVERYTHING so once we have to choose 1 thing out of 30 we become stressed, anxious about the decision and then in the end unhappy about the choice we made 🤯.
.
Daniel Levitin tells a story in „The Organized Mind” about one of his students years ago who came to USA from Romania (Soviet at the time). He recalls how he met this girl in a store in front of a shelf full of different pens almost crying. She wasn’t able to pick one. Back in Romania they had only 3 types of pen and that’s it. “Which one do I need for my biology class? Which one for poetry? Do I want felt tip, ink, gel, cartrifge, erasable? Ballpoint, razor point, roller ball?” ✒🖋🖊.
Then once she chooses she’ll be worried if she got the right one. She’ll go back home and will want the other one, the one she didn’t buy.
Sounds familiar?
.
It may sound as a simple and quite basic example but if you think about it you choose a product every day 🤷🏼‍♀️. You do grocery shopping and you choose one milk before the other, you choose one jumper instead of another one, you choose one smartphone instead of a different brand. We make hundreds decisions everyday and once we decide we keep wanting the thing we didn’t get! Mind will always want something that is out of reach, something that we are missing 🤷🏼‍♀️.
.
We are all forced to make plenty decisions every day and this can easily make one unhappy 😬😰.
.
BUT!
.
Instead of thinking what you DIDN’T get think of what you DID get!
Appreciate that smartphone, smile at this new jumper, appreciate that pen! 🤗
.
Do you know why people in Africa or South America are happier than us? (I trully believe they are). Because they don’t have that ‘problem’! They simply appreciate what they have. They don’t have dozens brands of milk to choose from and wonder if that’s the right choice. They are simply happy because they got milk.
.
Minimalism and gratitude.
That’s the answer to it. Learn to choose 1 thing, to be happy about it and to forget about the ones you didn’t choose! 🙏

FOMO or JOMO?

FOMO or JOMO? Which one do you practice?
.
Nowadays people are so soaked into social media and Internet that it becomes hard for them to get off their phones. 📱 This habit got its name – FOMO – Fear of Missing Out.
.
Some of us can’t spend a day (or even an hour!) without the phone, without looking at instagram or checking facebook every 5minutes. Can you relate?
I used to HAVE TO check snapchat (when it was still on top 😅) everyday. I HAD TO see new stories before they disappear after 24h. I used to scroll whole facebook feed until I got to my last seen post. Same with twitter. I just had to see it all. What for? Don’t know. I just felt like I can’t miss out.
.
I had that problem not only with social media but with emails too. I could go on holidays, set an autoresponder and then check all the emails and reply to them straight away anyways. I just couldn’t let it go.
.
But luckily I changed FOMO into JOMO – Joy of Missing Out 😊. Now whenever I go on holidays I am happy to leave my mailbox full and let those unread emails wait for me. I go on instagram when I have time and feel like it, not because I HAVE TO see all the instastories before they disappear.
.
If you have same problem as I used to have just try (try really hard) to let your phone aside for 1 full day. Once you see that nothing happens when you miss out on the news and new posts on your social media it will be easier for you to do it next time and then another time and another.
.
Believe me, life is not all about social media! 😊
.
Enjoy JOMO!

Contradictory world

We live in weird times, don’t you think? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Times when everything is wrong and has it’s own haters. At least that’s how I feel.
▫️
I feel like whatever used to be good some time ago is now bad. I feel like we, as civilization, do circles when it comes to everyday rules. For example, 20-30 years ago people ate eggs and vegetables from their gardens/farms. It was all rural and eco 🍏🥦🌽🍅🥚. Then the technology moved on and somebody invented all this crap that we put into our food now to make vegetables last longer, be bigger, taste better, be more colorful etc etc. And it was hip. 🔝 People gave up on fresh food straight from farms and went for food made by big companies. „Because it tastes better!”, „Because it cheaper!” etc… And now we go back to point A. Fresh, healthy food is now on top, eating bio and eco stuff is trendy and food made by big companies is bad 👎. I feel like we keep saying that what we have is BAD and that we need something BETTER.
▫️
And it is not only about food. E.g. cosmetics too! There was a time when people used herbs and natural stuff to take care of their skin, then we had big companies make creams for us with all those chemicals inside that apparently made our skin more firm, glowing, younger looking and God knows what else. And now we are back to point A where the less chamicals cream has, the better. Obviously.
▫️
I feel like we no longer know what is good for us and what isn’t.🤷🏼‍♀️ There is such a a mix of various information on every subject that we don’t know what/who to listen to anymore 🤯.
▫️
Like some people say coconut oil is good for us and others are totally against it. Some specialists say silk is good for your hair and others say it isn’t. Some people say that motivating others and trying to make them feel better, to motivate them to reach out for their goals is great and some say that coaching is pure evil and nobody should listen to it.🤷🏼‍♀️
▫️
How do you find yourself in this hectic world nowadays? How should we react to all those contradictory opinions?
